God our loving Father,
thank you in making us 
experience your saving power
in the most unusual manner;
the imagery is most unique
like when Jesus used again
that Old Testament expression
"finger of God":

But if it is by the finger of God that I drive out demons, the the Kingdom of God has come upon you.

Luke 11:20

How lovely is that imagery of
"finger of God" as the power of 
God to drive out demons; the
only other instances "finger of
God" was used were in the
Book of Exodus when the 
Pharaoh's magicians admitted
the plagues were the works of 
"the finger of God" and secondly
to describe how the Ten Commandments 
were written by the "finger of God"
on two tablets of stone; 
and now, Jesus described
his driving away of a demon 
from a possessed man as work
of the "finger of God".
In all instances, O God,
your power so great is so
unlike of what we know 
of worldly power that is
threatening and menacing; 
was it coincidental, dear God,
that the most powerful prayer
instrument we now have is the
Holy Rosary that is literally found
on our fingers too?

As we pray the Rosary with our
lips and fingers, suffuse us
with your power that loves and
heals, forgives and cares;
may we "imitate" what the
mysteries of the Rosary "contain" 
by following Jesus like Mary
in all his joys and sufferings,
glory and light.

Like during the time of Christ,
we are being attacked in all fronts
by many detractors who refuse
to acknowledge the Holy Rosary is
a Christocentric prayer that contemplates
the life of Jesus our Savior 
through the face of Mary his Mother;
as we meditate the life of Christ
through the Rosary beads 
with our fingers, 
let us experience
your great power anew,
your power to love
and care especially 
the sick and suffering,
the lost and forgotten
so that in the end,
may your power
triumph over the
evils of the world
expressed in dominance
and manipulations,
lies and character
assassinations,
and disrespect for
life and persons.
Amen.

Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary,
Pray for us!
